Lady Windermere’s Fan

Oscar Wilde is at his bitingly satirical best targeting Victorian morals (especially marital) in this comic thriller that made him an overnight star. We meet rich, stunning, recently wed Lady Windermere on the day of her birthday ball when a notorious gossip drops by to announce that her new husband is betraying her — with a mysterious woman who is coming to the ball. Be ready for jealousy, intrigue, twists, turns, and massive doses of Wildean wit.

Major Barbara

Have your ideals tested and your beliefs turned on their head in one of Shaw’s wittiest and most provocative plays. When arms dealer Andrew Undershaft is reunited with his Salvation Army daughter Barbara, each is sure the other’s profession is a source of immorality. She invites him to visit her shelter – he agrees as long as she will come visit his cannon works. They are both convinced that the other will be converted. But who is right, who is wrong, who is good, who is evil is never – typical of Shaw – as simple as it seems.

Romeo and Juliet

Two young people fall headlong in love the moment they meet – but their families are bitter enemies, locked in a longstanding feud that has newly erupted into violence in the streets. Some of Shakespeare’s most gorgeous language suffuses this intensely romantic tale of stolen bliss, wrenching separation and tragic twists of fate.
